Shut down this ebay scam!

Here's his 165 bikes for sale

Call me cynical, but user ID frermonstoresmake registered Dec 11 2004 and has 789 items up for auction, including 165 bicycles. I think something is amiss. He's got an Italian surname, registered in Canada, items located in the UK, and his email goes back to a domain name whose owner has a different name, but kept his address details private. Suggestions?

Can we all bid his bikes up to $1 million each? Heck, it's Christmas time, make it $2 million.
